D octor Franck came in as I sat sewing up the rents in an old shirt, that Tom might go tidily to his grave. New shirts were needed for the living, and there was not wife or mother to "dress him handsome when he went to meet the Lord," as one woman said, describing the fine funeral she had pinched herself to give her son. "Miss Dane, I'm in a quandary," began the Doctor, with that expression of countenance which says as plainly as words, "I want to ask a favor, but I wish you'd save me the trouble." "Can I help you out of it?" "Faith! I don't like to propose it, but you certainly can, if you please." "Then give it a name, I beg." "You see a Reb has just been brought in crazy with typhoid; a bad case every way; a drunken, rascally little captain somebody took the trouble to capture, but whom nobody wants to take the trouble to cure. The wards are full, the ladies worked to death, and willing to be for our own boys, but rather slow to risk their lives for a Reb. Now you've had the fever, you like queer patients, your mate will see to your ward for a while, and I will find you a good attendant. The fellow won't last long, I fancy; but he can't die without some sort of care, you know. I've put him in the fourth story of the west wing, away from the rest. It is airy, quiet, and comfortable there. I'm on that ward, and will do my best for you in every way. Now, then, will you go?" "Of course I will, out of perversity, if not common charity; for some of these people think that because I'm an abolitionist I am also a heathen, and I should rather like to show them, that, though I cannot quite love my enemies, I am willing to take care of them."

O n a cheery June day Mrs. Penelope Carroll and her niece Debby Wilder were whizzing along on their way to a certain gay watering-place, both in the best of humors with each other and all the world beside. Aunt Pen was concocting sundry mild romances, and laying harmless plots for the pursuance of her favorite pastime, match-making; for she had invited her pretty relative to join her summer jaunt, ostensibly that the girl might see a little of fashionable life, but the good lady secretly proposed to herself to take her to the beach and get her a rich husband, very much as she would have proposed to take her to Broadway and get her a new bonnet, for both articles she considered necessary, but somewhat difficult for a poor girl to obtain. "Here is the first volume, if you like it, Sir. I can recommend it as an invaluable consolation for the discomforts of a summer day's journey, and it is heartily at your service." As much surprised as gratified, the gentleman accepted the book, and retired behind it with the sudden discovery that wrong-doing has its compensation in the pleasurable sensation of being forgiven. Stolen delights are well known to be specially saccharine; and much as this pardoned sinner loved books, it seemed to him that the interest of the story flagged, and that the enjoyment of reading was much enhanced by the proximity of a gray bonnet and a girlish profile. But Dickens soon proved more powerful than Debby, and she was forgotten, till, pausing to turn a leaf, the young man met her shy glance, as she asked, with the pleased expression of a child who has shared an apple with a playmate

Love and Self-Love
by Louisa May Alcott
"F RIENDLESS, when you are gone? But, Jean, you surely do not mean that Effie has no claim on any human creature, beyond the universal one of common charity ?" I said, as she ceased, and lay panting on her pillows, with her sunken eyes fixed eagerly upon my own. "Ay, Sir, I do; for her grandfather has never by word or deed acknowledged her, or paid the least heed to the letter her poor mother sent him from her dying bed seven years ago. He is a lone old man, and this child is the last of his name; yet he will not see her, and cares little whether she be dead or living. It's a bitter shame, Sir, and the memory of it will rise up before him when he comes to lie where I am lying now." "And you have kept the girl safe in the shelter of your honest home all these years? Heaven will remember that, and in the great record of good deeds will set the name of Adam Lyndsay far below that of poor Jean Burns," I said, pressing the thin hand that had succored the orphan in her need. But Jean took no honor to herself for that charity, and answered simply to my words of commendation.

HOW IT WAS LOST A mong green New England hills stood an ancient house, many-gabled, mossy-roofed, and quaintly built, but picturesque and pleasant to the eye; for a brook ran babbling through the orchard that encompassed it about, a garden-plot stretched upward to the whispering birches on the slope, and patriarchal elms stood sentinel upon the lawn, as they had stood almost a century ago, when the Revolution rolled that way and found them young. One summer morning, when the air was full of country sounds, of mowers in the meadow, blackbirds by the brook, and the low of the kine upon the hill-side, the old house wore its cheeriest aspect, and a certain humble history began. "Nan!" "Yes, Di." And a head, brown-locked, blue-eyed, soft-featured, looked in at the open door in answer to the call. "Just bring me the third volume of 'Wilhelm Meister,'there's a dear. It's hardly worth while to rouse such a restless ghost as I, when I'm once fairly laid." As she spoke, Di pushed up her black braids, thumped the pillow of the couch where she was lying, and with eager eyes went down the last page of her book.

Louisa May Alcott: 1832-1888 Louisa May Alcott's novel brings to life vividly the life of New England during the nineteenth century. A life that was tranquil, secure, and productive. It is little wonder, for she drew on her own and on her family's experiences for her work. As one of four daughters growing up in Boston. At the age of eight, she moved with her family to nearby Concord. There she spent the happiest years of her younger life, even though she experienced the constant threat of poverty. She counted as friends the children of Hawthorne and Emerson. The Alcott was only a modest cottage, but the girls made use of a neighboring barn to perform plays written by Louisa May.

DATE OF DEATH: March 6, 1888- the date of her own father's funeral, to which she was unaware PLACE OF DEATH: Boston, Massachusetts FAMILY BACKGROUND: Louisa was one of four daughters. Although her father's association with the Transcendentalists allowed Louisa to grow up in an intellectual and non-conventional environment, her own views challenged the transcendental philosophies. Her education served to foster her love and dedication to writing, acting, education and women's rights. EDUCATION: Most of Louisa May Alcott's early education was received by her father, Bronson Alcott. For a short time she attended a small school in Still River Village and a small school held in her family's barn. She was instructed throughout her childhood by her father's fellow Transcendentalists: writers and family friends, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Margaret Fuller. DESCRIPTION OF ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Louisa May Alcott is widely known as the writer of Little Women , a self reflective children's book published in 1868.

    Paw Prints Anecdotes
    Short, humorous stories about people
    in politics, history, and the arts. Louisa May Alcott
    Anecdote... When Miss Alcott became a celebrity, she often found her fame tiresome. A supporter of the fight for women's suffrage, she attended the Women's Congress in Syracuse, where she was accosted by an effusive admirer. "If you ever come to Oshkosh," said the lady, "your feet will not be allowed to touch the ground: you will be borne in the arms of the people. Will you come?" "Never," replied Miss Alcott. Quote-worthy... I asked for bread, and I got a stone in the shape of a pedestal.
    Biographical Note... U.S. novelist. She wrote well over a dozen books, as well as many poems, stories, and essays. Perhaps her most well-known novel is Little Women (1869), one in a three-book series about her family. She first turned to writing to support her family, impoverished by the unworldliness of her father, Bronson Alcott. Even now, over 100 years after her death, she has books on the bestseller list. She has also had a crater on Venus named after her.
